So, if you were upset that ESA was hiring astronauts because you’re not a European and couldn’t make it, no problem!

The Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center is seeking an astronaut to support the ISS program./a>

Surprisingly the job requirements are way less stringent than for the ESA. You can make do with a batchelor degree (as opposed to two degrees and being a published leader in your field) and good health, or, if you want to fly your way in only 1000 hours in jets (not 3000 in experimental jets). Damnit, I make the qualifications for this one!
